Money for Nothing – Europes No. 1 Dire Straits Tribute

“Undoubtedly the best Dire Straits tribute in Europe”

Money for Nothing was formed in 2000 as a tribute to one of the world’s premier rock bands – Dire Straits. The abundant energy and the excellence and musicality of their performance makes Money For Nothing a “must see” for any rock enthusiast or Dire Straits fan. Fronting the band is the outstanding Howie G (who you may recognise from his years with The Classic Rock Show) Behind him the line-up features top-class and experienced musicians that make this band a worthy tribute to Dire Straits. Howie and all the band have studied Dire Straits in great depth to re-create their tribute to be as close as possible to the real thing and a respectful tribute to their idol and guitar legend.

“Make no mistake, they are good, very good” – The Observer

Featuring all the hits from their first ever single ‘Sultans of Swing’ to ‘Brothers in Arms‘, ‘Walk of Life’ and their last single released in 1992 ‘The Bug’ – also the legendary ‘Money For Nothing’ (ft Sting) which was the first ever video played on MTV. The band also include versions from ‘On the Night’ and ‘Live @ The BBC‘. The Money For Nothing stage show has been performed all over Britain and the world, at all types of venues & events – from music festivals, theatres, nightclubs and venues. 2010 saw them headline the main night on Europes Biggest Tribute Festival.

The band have also had the pleasure of performing as show opener for the legendary Roy Wood on part of his Theatre Tour. Sept 2011 saw them take their show to India to perform at a sell-out concert where they headlined an event held at one of Bangalore’s largest Amphitheatres.
